Re: Foreign Birth Registration

"More than 4,500 emergency FBR applications have been processed in 2021." -Simon Coveney Thats quite impressive (if true) considering they have been completely shut down. Also good to see the department of foreign affairs hiring staff specifically for FBR department. (https://www.dfa.ie/about-us/wor...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

Yeah I don't think FBR Team numbers are particularly relevant. Though not all teams are equal it seems. They work at different speeds. The members of each team are not likely to be the same people 1 or 2 years down the line anyway.

Will it actually be received and get stored somewhere?
Yes. But you won't hear from them about receiving it.

I beleive that I may need to submit some additional documents to my application eventually, does anyone know how to facilitate this or have a contact number I could reach out to?
I believe you are supposed to wait for them to contact you requesting any additional documents.

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

Hi guys, been a bit of a lurker but haven't seen an exact answer to my q, I've heard from friends that there is a time limit once you have completed the online application form to send it off with the supporting documents. I paid my fee on 15/11/20 and have obviously not been able to send it off du...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

Hi, Hoping someone can help with this, I'm applying for FBR on behalf of my son on the basis of my father being born in Ireland. However, he is unable to get current state-issued ID: he's never had a passport, is too young to get a drivers license and apparently the government scrapped ID cards in ...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

What is there to be ashamed about having a British passport? I know right? Besides there are plenty of websites that provide leather Irish passport covers that people could put over their British passports if they are that concerned. Seems like a real rigmarole just for the aesthetics of the physic...

Sounds like the best timeline one could ask for right now - congrats! Question: how was the certificate mailed to you, and did you have to sign for it? Not that it matters at the moment (still waiting for address confirmation email), but I’m going to be traveling for about 4 weeks in September, and...

I'm just off to the Post Office to sort out my UK passport application - seeing as I won't be getting my Irish passport with a golden harp on it any time yet.

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

As it doesn’t seem unreasonable for me to hope for a ‘confirmation of address’ email over the summer, I’m wondering if it’s best just to let things go to my UK home, or should I inform them of my address in France where I’m currently resident? I don’t want to hold things up. My daughter could post ...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

I do not like the indifferent way these applications are handled. The tedious delays are compounded by an almost total absence of communication that is unacceptable. They are working with virtually no sense of urgency and are utterly disconnected from the lives they are ruining as they take the art...

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

For those people who have received your Irish passport, did you have to send in your current [other nationality] passport as part of your supporting documentation for your Irish passport? The language on the application seems pretty clear that's required, but I'm reluctant to put my passport in the...

Hey, curious for some thoughts here. I got my paperwork in September of last year, got the email that it was received. I know I am way at the back of the line, but probably sometime in 2022 we’re going to want to start trying for a family. If we were to get pregnant, does Ireland accelerate applica...

Apparently there is a large anti-lockdown protest in Dublin right now. No masks & no social distancing.
Will this lead to easing of restrictions or another spike & longer lockdown restrictions :cry:
